Siting

A completed LPC-PA8: Siting Certification Form must accompany any application for a permit for a new pollution control facility, as defined in Section 3.330 of the Illinois Environmental Protection Act (Act). Siting, the process described in Section 39.2 of the Act that the local government uses to approve the site location, must be completed before submitting an application for a new facility and certain modifications to an existing facility. However, not all new facilities must get local siting approval. Examples of those facilities that may not need local siting approval include: hazardous facilities that treat their own waste on-site, landscape waste composting facilities, and transfer stations that are used exclusively to transfer landscape waste within 24 hours after it is received. The process to obtain siting approval is described in Section 39.2 of the Illinois Environmental Protection Act.

Permits - Underground Injection Control Forms

Underground Injection Control (UIC) Wells are wells used to inject various wastes into a selected geologic formation beneath the surface of the Earth. Injection of industrial or municipal wastes into a UIC well is considered to be a form of disposal, as the waste is injected into a portion of the subsurface of the Earth. Since groundwater is a major source of drinking water in the United States, the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974 established the UIC Program to prevent contamination of any groundwater resulting from the operation of injection wells.
